Born out of Oman Sail’s experience in developing high-performing sailing teams, our core approach is delivered through experiential learning using the 7 competencies of Zimam.
Offering six key areas of development, Zimam delivers services to suit a variety of participants and enable organisations to achieve their goals.
It is important in the 21st Century to be equipped with certain skills such as leadership, management, critical thinking, problem analysis, teamwork and other similar skills that are needed by every individual in any organization.
I’ve witnessed my students develop soft skills that will benefit them in their day-to-day lives.
What happened after Zimam is not just a positive change, it was a radical change in the students’ behaviour, abilities, mindset and goals, and even their strategy for careers after graduation.
The excellent interaction between the children and the facilitators enabled them to learn a lot of different skills and competencies which will help them in their daily and academic life, now and in the future.
The leadership programme is perfect for people who will soon be looking for employment as it provides training in the interpersonal skills that are so crucial for success in the workplace.
We are proud of the achievements of the students, the course facilitators and Oman Sail, with whom we have worked hand-in-hand to bring leadership and the development of interpersonal skills to the very forefront of developing people. Our investment in the future of Oman centres on sustainability and long-term benefit, and since conception, this has been a trailblazing programme which continues to change the lives of young Omanis for the better.
Zimam National Leadership Programme is one of OAPFD objectives to develop human resources. The ultimate goal is to make this programme a national learning initiative, and together we aim to teach soft skills which will help students set personal goals and equip them with the self-confidence and interpersonal skills required to succeed, making them more employable in the future and able to make a telling contribution to the future of Oman’s growth.
